The Beauty and the Peace (Let Grace Transform You)

How could you ever know peace if you haven’t experienced the divine discontent that forced you to see things differently?

In that sense the ego was indeed needed, the ignorance was needed, the not knowing who you are created the suffering you needed, and that suffering is what eventually leads to the spiritual awakening.

Not necessarily, but suffering of some kind is usually in the picture if the desire to really know your true nature wasn’t there to begin with. Life has it’s ways to get our attention..

Crisis can be the catalyst for change, but if you don’t see that yet, you will have to suffer a bit more before the shift can happen.

Some people feel the pull of spirit from an early age.

Some people have a natural drive to go by pure instinct and faith.

Some people, most people, are driven by fear.

The beauty of life has never been clearer in my own life as it is today (that doesn’t mean it’s a permanent “state”, it only means that there’s an underlying peace present that hold everything regardless of where I find myself),

.. everyday is a new discovery, a fresh point of awareness and the peace that is present is here because of the realization that this moment is all there is, and we only have this moment to deal with, and also to enjoy. Right now.

If (when) challenges come, they appear in the present moment and are dealt with in the present moment. 

When joys and moments of delight and enjoyment are present, they are here right now and even more enjoyed and basked in, for the pure joy of beingness.

It’s not far away. It’s not to be attained or achieved, it’s here. Look around you, appreciate the ugliness and the turmoil as well as the more enjoyable moments – it’s the call of your soul to get out of your mind, stop making stories about this moment and simply be.

Life is now.

Sometimes we just slip and get lost in the past of future projections. But Life is still Here and Now, just as it always has been and always will be.

The mystery is constantly revealing itself in every moment. There is no end to evolution, and I can’t image that I would ever say that I am ‘done’ in any way.

The suffering we go through lies in the misplaced identity (thinking we are the separate person), in the resistance to just let love have us, in the belief that we can control Life, manage it, and mold it according to our little wishes and wants.

Life is continuously unfolding, the discovery never stops, life remains a mystery, and true understanding always comes after the experiences as long as you’re open to investigate and not taking the experiences for the Truth itself.

The willingness has to be there, and everyone has their own processes to go through, but the willingness to die before you die so you can fully live is the same for us all.

Surrender to life, let it take you, give yourself to it, because it will not let you go, and you can either kick and scream your way through it, or you can remain open and willing in this moment and be attentive to where it pulls you.

Don’t shun away from the uncomfortable as the mainstream spirituality teaches you. Go deeper, let yourself be swallowed up by Truth.

As long as you only want to feel good or better, you will only find yourself on the shallow surface of life.

And when you do go deeper, know that there will be a back and fort process going on for a while, you will feel trapped by life at times, all the while knowing oneness, and that in itself is very difficult, the fear can be dreadful.

Know that there will be a leveling out, you will find yourself moving from the extremes to a balancing out.

There will be times when you feel completely spiritually flat-lined, and there will be times when all you do is breath and live Truth, completely immersed in it.

One day you will call of the search, and that will be the day the realization hits you, that you are not in control of any of this.

To make a simple analogy; you can’t decide who you are going to fall in love with, and when.

And you will never get the first kiss back, which can be yet another analogy of the egos desperate attempts to get some spiritual experience “back” that they had years ago.

That is one of the most common questions I get; how do I get it back? (You don’t, it’s an experience, and they come and go).

Love just happens, out of the blue, and it really doesn’t matter how much you seek for mister or miss Right, how many dates you go on, how many people you sleep with, hoping that this person might be it. None of that matters.

Love will not happen until Love decides to happen. Simple as that, and the more you desperately seek it, the more you will suffer.

The same with Truth. Life does what Life wants, when Life wants it, and the blessing lies in the realization of that, the liberation, the freedom! In the not-knowingness, the unknown, the indescribable, the scary place where the ego doesn’t want to go.

Dive into the dark, even if it’s terrifying. Life is in the unknown.

In difficult times, try your best to embrace the not-knowingness, allow yourself to trust life, and stay with the “I don’t know”.

Just stay there, don’t try to understand, understanding will come when it comes, and it will not come from the rational mind.

The ego takes time to dissolve, and the though-processes will take it’s time to be deconstructed and there will be times of great dissolution and confusion while this refinement is taking place. But it will take place, so let it. 

Relax and trust that everything is unfolding just as it should, and understand that there’s a maturation that takes place after realization.

This process will include spiritual temper tantrums, foot stomping moments, and even rage – know that it’s the ego’s resistance to transformation.

Remember what you have said; Thy will be done. That really means Thy will, and NOT your will.

Your prayer has been answered, now buckle up! 😀

Let grace transform you.

That’s how you realize the true beauty of Life and the peace that passeth all understanding. – By diving (throwing yourself!) into the unknown fully and completely.

“…  remember that even though that can be very difficult to go through, as it will feel like a bulldozer within you, grinding and burning away the remnants of the ego, it is all for the sake of the awakening  for Life to wake up as you.

Everything serves Truth and awakening. Everything…”

Transformational coaching

Book a private one-on-one with me.

Any kind of suffering such as stress, fear, self-doubt and struggle comes from being out of alignment with ourselves and the flow of Life. Freedom, inner calm and confidence comes from awakening to who we really are and integrating our soul and humanness into a state of wholeness and alignment with the flow of Life.

Maria is the real deal. You will sense it the moment you lay eyes on her. She offered much, much more than I’ve derived from other teachers; highly specific and personal recommendations. It is as though I got a crash graduate course from spirit. Could not more highly recommend!

Maria is beyond amazing

And with only that one session and the healing she carried out, I’ve been without grudges, feelings of being hurt or anything on those lines. This feeling of peace and freedom is priceless.

I’ve never had a conversation like that before

I just wanted to say thank you so much again for our session yesterday, I’ve never had a conversation like that before and it was truly amazing.

I cannot believe what you were able to achieve in one session

I don’t really know where to start. I find myself at a loss for words. I have had many years of trying different therapies and solutions to my problems. All I can say to you is Thank You. This was unlike any healing session that I have ever been in and I say that from the bottom of my skeptical, over analytical heart who had literally tried every cure one could think of. I cannot recommend you enough to other people, you are a gift. I also cannot believe what you were able to achieve in one session, to me it is groundbreaking. Thank you!!!

Rosie Bebawi, Marbella, Spain

I have never felt more aligned to my true self

Maria’s awareness of energies and the conditions of the mind are truly impressive. She knows exactly what’s going on. She is so attuned to other peoples’ energy that she just knows where you’re at. After working with her I have never felt more alive and aligned to my true self.

Andrew B, San Diego, CA, USA

Her unique ability to read your state helped me to breakthrough

Maria’s intuitive abilities have been instrumental to the personal growth I’ve experienced as a result of working together. I’ve had HUGE shifts in my beliefs. Her undivided attention, presence and unique ability to read your state helped me to breakthrough and release old patterns and replace them with new self-empowering practices that have truly shifted my life. I would highly recommend Maria to anyone. I am forever changed and forever grateful!

Joanna, USA

I was going through a spiritual shake up

Had it not been for you, I would have possibly fell into madness thinking I was just domestically “crazy” vs. going through a spiritual shake up. So, thank you for helping and giving me the encouragement to stand strong amidst experiences that I didn’t understand.

T. Freeman, Atlanta, USA

Profound shift

I can’t put into words how much you have helped me. I couldn’t have kept it all together had I not experienced a PROFOUND shift during and after my session with you.

I feel blissful

I don’t know if I make sense, but all I can say is that I feel blissful. And I can’t thank you enough for that. I don’t know exactly how you managed this, but you have really made a difference in how my mind works.

Silvia, Marbella, Spain

I was taken over by a peacefulness

After our session, something happened within me that I cannot explain nor would it even make sense to anyone. There was a part of me that felt my being been taken over by a real peacefulness that I’ve never encountered before. Sounds odd but it’s the truth.

The feeling of peace and freedom is priceless

With only that one session and the healing she carried out, I’ve been without grudges, feelings of being hurt or anything on those lines. This feeling of peace and freedom is priceless. Maria is beyond amazing. Had I not experienced it myself, I would probably not believe it. I recommend anyone who is trying hard to be truly free and really start walking down the path of self fulfillment and happiness to book a session with her.

Maria has an extraordinary insight on the process of spiritual awakening

Maria has an extraordinary insight and awareness on the process of spiritual awakening. My favorite thing about her is her honesty and transparency, she shares her experiences without holding back, and that makes her real and approachable.

Gia, Texas, USA

Working with Maria has been more transformational than any other thing that I’ve tried

I highly recommend Maria! I don’t even recognize the person who started working with her a few months ago. Maria clearly sees what is blocking, stopping or limiting you. Working with her has been more transformational than any other thing that I’ve tried. There have been profound shifts in the way I see myself and the world, so many shifts in my energy and life. I find myself so much lighter and freer. Thank you Maria!

Britt, Marbella, Spain

It was more than I could ever hoped for or expected

My experience with Maria was more than I could ever hoped for or expected. I had such a positive experience working with her. I feel like a huge weight have been lifted and I have so much more perspective on what I have been struggling with. She cleared up my energy and I feel more myself, more at peace and all around better mentally and emotionally since my sessions with her.

Miriam, Espoo, Finland

A calm came over me

I could feel the tension leaving my body and a calm came over me by just being in her presence. Everything flows so naturally with her and my life is more beautiful and I feel at peace knowing I have her by my side. I feel blessed to have her in my life.

Cecilia, Stockholm, Sweden

My life has changed dramatically

Since plugging in to your words of wisdom my life has changed dramatically. You pointed me in the right direction and that gave me courage to continue moving through whatever process I may find myself in and the ability to take refuge in the truth within me.

You can trust Maria with your heart and soul

I can’t stress enough what a gift it is to be able to work with somebody like Maria. Talk about amazing grace! I feel like this heavy weight of negativity has fallen away from me and I couldn’t get those awful feelings back if I tried. If you can trust one thing in your life right now, trust Maria. You can trust her with your heart and soul. I can tell you with absolute honesty and conviction that having a session with Maria is life-changing!

Lisa, USA

The distance healing was amazing

I felt at peace, and had a complete turnaround to my situation so many thanks for helping me transform something I had lost hope about. It’s a miracle and the outcome could not have turned out better! If you want to see a real shift not just psychological but spiritual shift, then Maria is the lady to see. I am so glad I found you and will book in another session soon!
